It might be the current heatwave, we’re not sure, but it seems that whilst everyone was looking at the World Cup a couple of glaring errors were made in the scheduling departments at both BBC and S*y S***ts. Whilst his supervisor was off sneaking a look at the latest events from South Africa a junior office-boy at both networks committed the minor clerical error of accidently putting TheLikesOfDoncaster Rovers in their live schedules. September’s match against Leeds United and October’s match against Sheffield United will now be on the box. Shhh, don’t tell anyone.
Here’s the pair of Rovers forthcoming television opponents playing one another in a Championship deciding game from 18 years ago. Leeds United won the Division One title before the over-bearing world of the Premier League took hold in a pulsating Yorkshire derby at Bramall Lane in 1992. You’ll have no doubt people say, “if ever a goal was fitting of winning a title that was it”, well that certainly cannot be said about Leeds’ three goals from this fixture. It doesn’t make them any less entertaining mind.
